Elizabeth White writes for the Associated Press: Down nine points going into the period, Duncan had already done plenty, scoring 12 points in the third and hitting his first 3-pointer of the season. So the Spurs turned up the defensive effort, holding the New Orleans Hornets to just 13 fourth-quarter points to win 92-88 Wednesday. “We gave up a lot in the previous quarters. It was a great way to…

Steve Kerr writes: The San Antonio Spurs are pretty much locked into the third seed in the West, unless something dramatic happens. That means whomever is the sixth seed will be matched up with them. Currently, the Lakers and Denver Nuggets are fighting it out for the sixth and seventh spots, and it looks like L.A. has the inside track to finish with a better record. But do the Lakers…

Game 68 Vs. Detroit: Spurs 90, Pistons 89 So often we hear statements like “this game had playoff level intensity” or “it was a playoff like atmosphere” and they’re so overused that they’ve become trite and cliché, but you know what? This game did feel like the playoffs to me. I had my arms crossed the whole time, I was muttering and cursing like an idiot and while there is…

Game 66 Vs. Boston: Celtics 91, Spurs 85 Ugh. We’ve seen enough of these this year, no? Charlotte. Houston. Lakers. @ Minny. They sleepwalk through three quarters, look up at the scoreboard at the beginning of the fourth, the reality of a 10 point defecit finally dawns on them, they wake up with from their stupor and fight furiously to tie it up and perhaps even take a small lead,…

Game 64 Vs. Los Angeles: Spurs 93, Clippers 84 Who’d a thunk it, lucky 13 in the books! I really don’t have a lot to say about this one. Snoozer. We haven’t put together so much as a “B” game since we played the Rockets. And just so you don’t think I’m biased, that was the night Manu sucked. What’s there to say? We’ve just been sleepwalking the past week,…

http://poundingtherock.com/story/2007/3/13/53048/5641 It took a while for that e-mail to register where you guys wanted the links to PtR columns I write. The title is kinda hard to explain. One of our readers said he’d go to PtR more regularly if Matthew or I had stories about our fathers being gay or something. Okay, so it wasn’t that hard to explain. We just have weird readers.

Looks like Dirk Diggler No-wits is crying (not that Erick “Contract Year” Dampier ain’t)…from the AP: “Dirk Nowitzki even got embarrassed enough to draw a technical foul while sitting on the bench. Nowitzki became visibly frustrated in the third quarter, flattening Davis for an offensive foul before comically swatting a loose ball out of a cameraman’s hands in his fury. Monta Ellis scored eight points and made a spectacular move…
